This is a private apartment overlooking the woods, on a quiet street. The apartment is in the basement of our home, yet it is bright, modern and very comfortable. There are two small bedrooms as well as a common space that is the living room and kitchen. You are welcome to use the patio and the backyard which are directly outside of the apartment. You can have all the privacy you desire as it is a completely separate space and entrance from our home. FYI- Sometimes you will hear noise overhead!
